Default Traded for a G.W Flanagan LB

Well as hard as it was, I traded off my 1st trad bow for a G.W.Flanagan lb and a set of Border XP 10 ILF limbs for another project I am working on. This LB is 66" 47 @ 28" Purpleheart and Black Micarta with Bamboo limbs. Pretty bow and shoots real good. It is going to get to shoot some piggies real soon.

Isn't that the same make of bow that won the IBO Trad world? G.W. buys wood from me but not purple heart. That old man is country as a dirt clod.. I think he has to climb a telephone pole to call out. He is a really ice guy and you would never know he could build such a sweet bow. Congrats Pool....

I shot with him 2 rounds at the Recurve Championship. He is a very nice man. He was fun to shoot with and he does make some PRETTY and Good shooting bows. Thanks for the compliments. I think it's a keeper. They tell me his bows like around an 8 1/2 " brace BTW

Todd:

I have one of his bows and it is really nice -- my current favorite. I drove up to meet him when I bought the bow and I agree that he is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Ryan Ransey, the guy that won the IBO trad world and a whole bunch of other big shoots uses a flanagan bow. My bow is cocobolo, black phenolic (which makes it nice and heavy) and deer antler. My bow shoots best at 8.5"

BTW, do a search for IBP trad world on youtube and you can see Ramsey shooting his GW Flanagan in the finals -- he is a really impressive shooter

Good looking bow Todd. It will be strange seeing a longbow in your hand all the time.

I'm still Recurve Todd, but it is nice to have a new LB to play with

He is a super nice guy. Shiloh shoots his bows and shoots them excellent I might add. Paul just missed you at Smithfield
